I've been having some difficulty lately with my dial-up connection. I previously checked this with my Internet supplier, so now I turn to you.
When I log on to Internet, and I pick a function such as Outlook Express, or Yahoo Mail, or Yahoo Messenger, I will get a dialogue box which has three choices "CONNECT", WORK OFFLINE" OR CANCEL.
The message goes on to say that this program cannot function without a connection.
My internet provider has advised me that perhaps my Firewall is giving me the problem. When I have this dialogue box on my screen, I can look down to my system tray and it shows that I am already connected and I can see the kbs that is coming in.
By the way this started just after I was having problems with "Cannot Find Server"(see my earlier post)
I have done Avast Anti-Virus scan(clean), Ad-Aware Anti-Spyware Scan(clean), Spybod Scan(clean) and Yahoo Toolbar Anti-Spy Scan(only found inconsequential cookies) or so it seemed, any way they are removed.
